Green Day Announce 21st Century Breakdown Tour Dates

Two-month jaunt kicks off July 3 in Seattle.

It's been more than three years since [artist id="988"]Green Day[/artist] hit the road, and they're making up for lost time.

On Monday (April 20), they announced the first dates of a massive world tour in support of their upcoming album 21st Century Breakdown (due May 15), a two-month jaunt that will take the band across the U.S. and Canada.

The tour kicks off July 3 in Seattle and wraps August 25 in Los Angeles. No venues have been announced yet, nor have on-sale dates or opening acts.

Green Day's last tour — in support of their massive American Idiot album — spanned two years and was their most successful (and lengthy) jaunt to date. While working on Breakdown, the band took time off for a week-long tour as alter egos the Foxboro Hot Tubs.

With Monday's announcement of a tour, it's shaping up to be quite a week for Green Day fans. On Friday at 8 p.m. ET, their much-anticipated new video for the song "Know Your Enemy" will make its world premiere on more than 250 MTV on-air and online outlets.
